September 08, 2016 // Franchising.com // DULUTH, Ga. – Discovery Point Child Development Centers, a leader in educational childcare, announced today that franchise sales veteran Spencer Reid has joined the leadership team as the new Vice-President of Franchise Development.
Reid brings more than a decade of experience in franchise sales to the position, as well as an expertise in business development. His background includes positions as Vice-President of Franchise Development for Great Wraps and Vice-President of Sales and Development for Raving Brands Holding Company in Atlanta, multi-concept franchisor of brands such as Moe's Southwest Grill, Planet Smoothie, and Monkey Joe's. Most recently he was co-founder of Atlanta Franchise Group, a full-service franchise consulting company.
One of the many things that attracted him to Discovery Point Child Development Centers, he says, is the company’s unique, turnkey franchise model that sets Discovery Point apart in the childcare industry.
Once a franchise agreement is signed, the Discovery Point real estate team carefully selects optimum sites for its franchises, purchases the property and builds the childcare center from the ground up, handling all aspects of construction. All equipment is provided and installed by the franchise company, creating a turnkey opportunity for the franchisee to open the doors to a new state-of-the-art facility.
“Discovery Point has a truly unique franchise model,” Reid said. “There is a growing demand for the services we offer and I’m excited about the opportunity to take Discovery Point into new markets.”
Discovery Point Founder and CEO Cliff Clark says that Reid brings the right mix of experience and expertise to the franchise chain to lead an aggressive expansion plan.
“We are consistently seeking innovative ways to set Discovery Point apart from other franchise opportunities and Spencer has the experience needed to help us properly position the franchise opportunity and take our business to the next level,” Clark said. “We are excited to have him as a part of our team.”
